Two days before unveiling, ZTE Nubia Z9 has its price leaked
The bezel-less ZTE Nubia Z9 is expected to be unveiled on May 6th. The manufacturer says that without side bezels, Nubia Z9 users will be able to use the extra real-estate on the display to run certain functions like changing the volume, brightness and other settings for the phone. ZTE reportedly calls this Fringe Interactive technology or FiT. The company is asking developers to come up with some more functions for the feature, and says that it is the "third interactive revolution" following Nokia's QWERTY keyboard introduced in the 1990s and the launch of the touchscreen Apple iPhone in 2007.

Today a leak from Chinese social media site Weibo allegedly shows the pricing of the flagship phone from Chinese online retailer JD.com. According to the leak, the phone will be priced at the equivalent of $693 USD.

We expect to see the ZTE Nubia Z9 carry a 5.2-inch screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920. Under the hood will be the 64-bit octa-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 810 CPU with 4GB of RAM inside. The handset will feature 32GB of native storage, a 16MP rear-facing camera and a front-facing 8MP snapper for selfies and video chats. A 3000mAh battery powers the unit, which will have Android 5.0 pre-installed.

With the unveiling taking place on Wednesday, we soon will learn more about FiT and other features of the ZTE Nubia Z9. Stay tuned!

I still stand by 1080p. It will perform much better, and I'm doing absolutely fine with even the 720p screen on my Moto X, so 1080p is definitely enough...

Mind boggling that they could put a 3000 mAh battery in the Nubia Z9 and only 2900 in the Nubia Z9 Max - a bigger phone! I would have considered getting the Max if it had a decent battery. These days, anything under 3200 is a bit small, especially when a number of devices are coming out with batteries in the 3600 to 4000 range and higher.

1. 3200mAh is not more than 3200mAh. ;) 2. A year ago, not now.
